Reed Arena — College Station, Texas

Well, our backs are against the wall in this one, but that won't matter if we don't play significantly better (and for significantly more minutes) than we did in our three conference losses this year.

The odds of us winning in a hostile Reed Arena with a team prone to mental breakdowns and softness are pretty long, objectively speaking.

But if it's going to happen for us this year, it better start today. And what better place to try than in Texas, where we've won our last four games, including our last visit to this same arena?

From the K-State Sports Information Department:

No. 24 Kansas State (13-6, 1-3 Big 12) looks to continue its recent winning ways in the Lone Star State this afternoon, when the Wildcats travel to College Station, Texas, to face Texas A&M (16-2, 3-1 Big 12) at Reed Arena, with tip set for 1 p.m.

The squad has won four in a row in the state of Texas, dating back to 2009, which includes victories at Texas (85-81 on Jan. 31, 2009), Texas A&M (65-60 on Feb. 7, 2009), Baylor (76-74 on Jan. 26, 2010) and Texas Tech (83-64 on Feb. 23, 2010).

Last season, K-State swept through the Texas portion of the Big 12, knocking off the Aggies and Longhorns at home to go with the road victories over the Bears and Red Raiders.

Saturday’s game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN, with Jon Sciambi (play-by-play) and Fran Fraschilla (analyst) on the call.

It also will be available on the Web at ESPN3.com.

K-State leads the all-time series with Texas A&M, 15-6, including an 11-6 advantage since the inception of the Big 12 Conference in 1997.

The Aggies have won five of the seven meetings contested in College Station, however, including victories in three of the last four games at Reed Arena.

However, the Wildcats have won three of the last four games in the series, including a 65-60 victory in the teams’ last meeting in College Station on Feb. 7, 2009.

Last season, K-State earned an 88-65 win over Texas A&M at home Jan. 12, 2010, with four players scoring in double figures.
